As for not being able to finish Henderson in the latter rounds, give me a break. Shogun ate nearly a dozen H-Bombs and survived, whereas it took only a single blow to put Fedor to sleep. That he managed to finish the fight in control, let alone escape the first round, shows just how much he has left in the tank. Besides, you, much like Lyoto Legion, tend to ignore the obvious. That Machida has slowed down just as much, if not more than Shogun. Whereas Lyoto completely wilted against a Rampage Jackson who was content to hold onto him, Shogun came back from three
brutal rounds to put a hurt on Dan Henderson to close what was fight of the year.
But hey... I get how bias works. It makes fools out of us all.
No but jones wasnt able to put a beating on rampage and machida the way he did to shogun ! Oh and please Hendo gassed that's why shogun was able to come out in later rounds and take them, if it was a 3 round fight in would of been a dominating win for Hendo! Machida looked good against jones , he was doing all the right things, in and out explosive till he took that elbow that opened his fod, his fight before that was probably one of the best UFC knockouts ever.
